Typography and Words

I've spent much of my career in the world of print, design, and graphic arts ...  making the printed word look interesting and artful.  And I've always taken pleasure in quotes, inspirational phrases, bible verses - kind of words to live by.  So now, I have combined the two, and use my graphic arts skills just for fun!

A sampling of some of my favorites are shown below.  You can see lots more in my Etsy Shop at "Print Me Digitals"  where you can purchase instant, digital downloads.  These images work well for small and large prints on paper or canvas, stationery, note cards, post cards, puzzles, mugs and on fabrics such as for t-shirts, purses, totes, pillows, etc. Use your imagination!  You can print them at home from an inkjet printer or send them off to be printed just like a photograph.

And if you have a favorite phrase or quote you would like to see as art, please let me know and I will include it in my shop.

More Happy Trees!

Just putting the finishing touches on a commission piece.  "Melissa's Happy Trees" will be going to it's new home in California Monday or Tuesday.

It's the latest of my Happy Trees and was created to go with the client's decor.  She had specific colors in mind and sent me color swatches.

I finish up by signing the front and added two coats of Golden varnish.  The varnish makes the colors pop, gives it UV protection and makes it easier to dust.

I also sign on the back.

I always ship via UPS and let them do the packing.

If you would like me to create a painting just for you - just contact me.

A few of my necklaces.
A mix of modern glass beads, lava beads, my handmade paper beads, and upcycled vintage beads.

I usually prefer to make my own focal beads but I couldn't resist these handcrafted, fair trade, fish beads from Indonesia.  I mixed them with wood, glass, brass and a few of my handmade paper beads.

Don't be square, try some of my handmade clay triangles for a one of a kind necklace.
